question 1 of 3

After you rule out other causes of Hypoalbuminemia such as kidney and liver disease, you begin to suspect that there's something else going on. You're also thinking about the fact that you must be careful giving certain drugs that depend on Albumin, to this patient. Several days later, the patient also complains of a little blood coming out while he strains to defecate. What are you most likely suspecting at this point given this information?
